The holiday season is upon us, with Christmas Eve and Christmas Day falling conveniently on a weekend this year — a Christmas "miracle" that only happens every seven years on average. 

So while many employees who work standard business hours will get Christmas Eve and Christmas Day off this year, several others will still see more time off as the federal holiday will be observed on Monday, Dec. 26. 

Here are businesses that will be closed the day after Christmas:

Mail delivery

Post offices will be closed on Monday, which means mail and packages won’t be delivered by the United States Postal Service.

Packages from other delivery services could also be impacted. FedEx services are closed on Christmas Day, though most pick back up on Monday. UPS, however, has no pick-up or delivery services on Dec. 26.

The Federal Reserve is observing Christmas the Monday after, which means most banks will be closed. 

Banks are not required to close on federal holidays, but many do. Check your local branch before visiting.

Additionally, the New York Stock Exchange and Nasdaq will be closed.

As with other major holidays, private retailers may choose to be open or closed, or amend their hours. Check with your destination Monday before visiting.
